Transmissible Gastro-Enteritis (TGE) is a viral disease of the small intestine that causes vomiting and diarrhea in pigs of all ages. The infection spreads rapidly by aerosol or contact exposure.
Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) is a member of the coronavirus group which causes watery diarrhea, dehydration and high mortality in suckling pigs. The PEDV is transmitted by feces from infected pigs after oral ingestion.
ELISA and RT-PCR assays to detect viral antigens in feces or intestinal contents are useful, but require specialized instruments and laboratory personnel. The Anigen Rapid TGE/PED Ag test kit has been developed to provide fast and reliable test results of TGE/PED antigen in field conditions.
